festival hair styles

Fabulous festival hairstyles you’ll want to recreate

Fabulous festival hairstyles include beachy waves
Even if you’ve got no intention of going anywhere near a music festival this summer, you can still take inspiration from these great festival hairstyles. Beachy waves, boho braids and fishtail plaits are always festival favourites, but to be bang up to date this year, make sure you’ve got loads of texture worked in.

The secret to festival hair is all about low maintenance. Making sure your hair looks great several days in a row with limited facilities! Your most important ally in this will be a great dry shampoo like KMS California’s makeover spray.  It absorbs oils and builds up bulk to refresh day old styles.

Carla Delevingne’s boho waves look fabulous and will still look great on day 2 or 3 pulled back into a simple low ponytail.

To achieve her waves, just scrunch up the ends and spray liberally with hairspray.  Moroccan Oil’s luminous hairspray is perfect for the job as it is lightweight and flexible and great for natural styles like this.

Braids are the staple of every festival season, and this year they come in all shapes and sizes. If you love to wear your hair down, you can still tap in to this trend by adding a couple of braids on the underside of your hair. To keep it looking subtle just remember to keep each one as thin as you can.

Here are some more braids we love and think would look fabulous anywhere this summer – from festival to garden party.

lead and add a gorgeous hair accessory at the nape of the neck.


Finally, an easy way to tame unruly hair is with a simple but chic side plait.

By keeping the braid loose and pulling out some strands, you’ll nail the laid back feel.
